GURUGRAM: Activists are up in arms against the authorities for the lack of medical facilities for animals in Gurugram and Faridabad. The blood samples of peacocks that were sent to the laboratory in Rewari, four days ago, are yet to be tested as there aren’t the required number of veterinary doctors or equipment.
Five peacocks were found dead on May 9 in Negpur and Hathin village, and another 15 were rescued in an unconscious state by the forest officials from different parts of the city. To determine the cause of death and illness, their blood samples and carcasses were sent for autopsy. Locals said that the birds had fallen to death as their legs got twisted owing to ‘some disease’.
